Throughout the year, the Orange County Literary Society hosts exclusive events that present the works of major authors. The latest event consisted of a luncheon with poet Billy Collins as guest. Interlibrary Loan Assistant, Cori Schmidtbauer, attended this luncheon to represent the Leatherby Libraries.
After the lunch, Cori had the pleasure of hearing Collins speak a few words about his journey as a poet as well as listen to some poem recitations. She also received a copy of his latest book of poems, Aimless Love: New and Selected Poems. Another copy, dedicated “To the Students of Chapman University,” will soon be available in the Leatherby Libraries’ collection.
The Leatherby Libraries already has other works from Billy Collins, including The Trouble with Poetry and Other Poems; Picnic, Lighting; and eBook The Apple That Astonished Paris: Poems.
